The moonlight club in the city designed by Yanchuan architecture is located in Huaguo village, Longquanyi District of Chengdu. As a typical rural reconstruction and rural revitalization area, Longquan Mountain has become an area where the original rural life and modern leisure tourism are combined. In such an area with both traditional rural style and modern life, an original farm house is transformed into a new building with modern aesthetic needs, and it is hoped that the design can bring better vitality to the building and site.
The project is the transformation of the original two-story brick residence, but due to the conditions of the original building, the building cannot be greatly adjusted, and at the same time, the later stage of the project requires a large outdoor activity space. Therefore, the focus of this design is not on the transformation of the original building, but on how to expand the boundary of the original building, At the same time, through the expansion of the border to rebuild new order and site.
For the original two-story building, we reorganized its space according to the functional requirements, divided the catering area, entertainment area and accommodation area，and adjusted the doors and windows according to the division of plane functions. On the outside of the building, 3mx3m steel frame units are used to form a progressive frame grid. Through the combination and superposition of frame units, The steel grid and the original building become a whole, forming a new facade image of the building together. The existence of the unit steel structure not only breaks the monotonous and isolated image of the original building, but also expands the field of the building and establishes the constituent order for the project itself.
The generation of architecture comes from order, which is the internal logic of architecture design. However, this order is rarely reflected in the external image of architecture, and it often exists in the thinking and construction process of architecture. The pursuit of this order in traditional Chinese architecture is reflected in the beam column system, roof purlins and complex bucket arch structures in traditional architecture. How can reflect this internal architectural order composition, and take this order as the form of architectural expression is also the focus of our thinking in this design.
In the design, we use a modular composition through the three-dimensional steel frame unit of 3mx3mx3m to reconstruct a new architectural order for a building. Through the reconstruction of this new internal architectural order, we not only integrate the new building with the original building, but also take this order as the external manifestation of the building. This order not only creates the internal logic for the integration of the original building and the new building, but also provides a new opinion for the reconstruction architectural design.
The site of architecture is not only the concept of architectural material space, but also the embodiment of architectural humanistic feelings. The construction of architectural sites is the core of architectural space expression, and it is also the most important part of architecture for people. Through the composition of unit steel members, the project not only reconstructs the building order, but also rebuilds the original site of the building.
Through the building space formed by steel structure, a new building space is formed between the inside and outside of the building. because the construction of unit steel structure creates a more local space between the new steel structure unit and the original building, forming a more hierarchical space experience. The steel structure unit not only forms its specific site order, but also forms a more dynamic architectural space, creating a unique site spirit of the building.
Without more architectural shapes and colors, Without complex building materials and structures, the whole building reconstructs the order and site of the building through simple unit composition. Yanchuan architecture hopes that through this opinion and design of the internal order of architecture, people can better understand the significance and power of the essence of architecture.
